About the Pastor

Greetings in the Lord Jesus Christ!

Rev. Thomas Reeder, Jr. began serving Apostles Lutheran Church-LCMS in December of 2003.  Before accepting the Divine Call to Apostles, he served as Assistant Pastor at Pilgrim Evangelical Lutheran Church-LCMS in Wauwatosa, WI from 1999-2003.

Pastor Reeder graduated from Concordia Seminary-St. Louis (CSL) in 1999 with a Master of Divinity degree.  His undergraduate degree was in Psychology, which he received in 1994 from the University of Central Missouri (UCM) in Warrensburg, MO.  In 2011, he graduated from Concordia Theological Seminary-Fort Wayne (CTS) with a Master of Sacred Theology degree, majoring in the area of Systematic theology.

Pastor Reeder grew up in the state of Missouri, though his birth place was Port Arthur, TX.  The son of a pastor, his family moved to several different locations, all the while remaining in the “Show Me” state.  While at UCM, he met his soon-to-be wife, Yunmei, at a Bible study being offered at St. Timothy & Titus chapel-LCMS.0602122140

Pastor Reeder and his wife have two children, Enosh and Eagan. They enjoy the Platteville area and the people.

In addition to preaching and teaching the Word of God faithfully, that Jesus is the only Way, truth, and life (John 14:6), Pastor Reeder teaches Ethics and Religious courses at Universities in the area.
